Some Links

1) At what price, a new Appalchian Trail record? Take a look at Karl Meltzer's winning diet (don't try this at home):
This time, he capped each night with one or two beers and left from rest stops with rainbow-colored Spree candy, Three Musketeers chocolate bars and bacon in his pockets. To save time and keep his energy up, he typically slept less than seven hours a night and instead had an energy drink every 10 miles, downing about five a day. When on another day his support crew found him napping, they gave him a pint of ice cream for a boost.
2) Thpin! Thpin!

3) Tyler Cowen accidentally writes a post so bad that he has to passive-aggressively rebuke his own readers for not letting him get away with it. (I lol'd.)

4) Conservatives are more willing to allow business owners the right to refuse service than libertarians are. Bryan Caplan has the story. There could be many explanations for this, but I'd lean toward anti-conservative bias as a possible explanation.
